So the Kindle version of "A Kingdom Besieged" (Book One of The Chaoswar Saga) is a whopping 52¢ cheaper than the discounted HARDCOVER price?
This is why I've stopped purchasing new books for my beloved 3rd Gen Kindle and why it gathers dust on my desk. I will NOT pay as much (sometimes more!) for an eBook (which costs the publisher FAR less) as I will for a bleeping trade paperback, much less a 1st Edition hardcover. It just isn't going to happen.
So I will go back to stocking "real" books on my shelves, albeit at a much slower pace than I used to, rather than buy anything new for my Kindle. Until such time as publishers face reality and stop trying to roll back time I will stick to reading public domain offerings on my Kindle.
I just got all of Charles Dickens, so at least I'll have something to read the next time I'm on a road trip. Too bad I won't have the latest Feist novel, but that's the way my wallet swings.
